Ok i just watched a video of a skydiver jumping from 102,800 ft....he fell for 4 mins 30 secs....and reached a speed of 614 MPH....he opened his chute at 18000 ft.......would he have been able to reach the speed of sound??....and if so...what would have happened to his body?

The speed of sound is the interval right before light speed.

Its a quantum merging of field gravitation and light displacement.

link does that mean he will reach the speed of sound?....and what will happen to his body again??...just wonderin if i missed it there.

ok had to edit....quik search reveals the speed of sound to be at 770 mph

i know when an aircraft hits the speed of sound it emits a noise.....does this have any effect on the aircraft in question and would this have any effect on a skydiver?

He would not, he would have to be traveling at least two thousand miles an hour maybe three.

Sound travels in a wave.

Now the question would be does size effect the output>? and the answer is YES.

He would need enough of a thrust or punch to create a quantum pocket from mass and inertia. How this happens is through a wind tunnel.

Normally you could create this at six hundred miles an hour by an airplane. With a body it would need much more velocity to create the thrust or punch.
